What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are 40.3 million people living in slavery and bondage today. Breaking free from that abuse is the first step, but each person needs holistic care to walk the journey through the trauma associated with the abuse. With 25 years of experience, HAGAR has transformed into an internationally renowned leader in recovery services for survivors of human trafficking, slavery and abuse.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Hagar's goal is to see communities free and healed from the trauma of slavery, trafficking, and abuse. To take those from the toughest of human conditions, and bring them to a place of resiliency

Hagar provides aftercare in the form of: safe housing, counseling, case management, health care, education, job services, legal support and finally reintegration services.

We have programs in Cambodia, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Singapore, and capacity building in Myanmar. We have expert staff and the infrastructure to care for individuals who are referred to Hagar.

At Hagar we are committed to the whole journey. The whole journey starts with a survivor, an individual who has experienced severe trauma as a result of slavery, trafficking, or abuse. From the moment that individual enters our care, we work with them to assess what their needs are, and offer a full range of intensive and individualized services. We rebuild trust and resilience.

We can provide a safe place to live, counselling, case management services, legal support, education, and safe, empowering jobs. We create opportunities to ensure that the individual is not simply surviving, but thriving. The whole journey encapsulates each step taken by a survivor toward healing. Our goal is for each individual to be a champion for change in their own life and in the community.

Hagar is a global leader in supporting those who have experienced trauma to heal, develop their resilience, and lead full, productive lives. We call this trauma-informed care.

The Centre of Excellence for Trauma-informed Care is a collaborative space for academics, fieldwork practitioners, development specialists, and advocates to come together to further research and implement what we believe is the most effective means of recovery for trauma survivors across the globe.

Our Impact
At Hagar, we see the whole journey of the whole person. The Hagar impact is unique, because no one journey or client is the same. Our approach is to provide individualized care for every survivor we come into contact with, which to date, stands at more than 21,000 people. We don’t have a set time frame on how long we work with a client for; we do whatever it takes for as long as it takes.

We don’t just work at the individual level, but at a systemic level to see change in the countries in which we work. Local staff work closely with communities to empower them to change their attitudes and responses to slavery and abuse, in 2019 alone we trained 10,645 community members on topics like domestic abuse and trafficking awareness.

The Hagar impact is created in partnerships with government and local leaders. We know that this means this impact will have longevity. We currently have training and research partnerships with governments in each of the countries we work in. The Hagar impact is global, with programs in four countries across the world and support offices in six.
